Magnetic shape memory (MSM) alloys react to magnetic excitation with a deformation up to 6%, according to recent publications also up to 12%, and are a promising candidate for applications such as positioning, robotics and valve technology. In this work we describe, characterize and test a mechatronic system based on MSM alloys which entails a push-push actuating unit. The overall actuation system consists of a series of MAGNETOSHAPE® MSM modules that can be activated independently, and that can be composed and connected in different ways depending on the application needs. The actuated displacement is measured indirectly by a Hall sensor which is integrated in the actuator design. Each module is activated by a current source which is controlled by an algorithm running on a micro-controller. This algorithm is able to guarantee fast rise times and precise tracking of constant position references; moreover, it is able to offer a strong reduction of the power losses by a strategy which exploits advantageous properties of the hysteresis of the MSM alloys.
